He opened a tavern, store exactly the borrowing and lending money to, in Judenstrasse (Jewish village). Above the entrance hung trademark tavern, in the form of a red shield (Rothschild). At a very young age Mayer Amschel Bauer Jr. have demonstrated the ability of its enormous intellectual, and his father taught full time for almost everything he knows about the business of borrowing and lending money, as well as knowledge and experience gained from various sources. Bauer actually crave the elder son to be educated Jewish scholars (Rabbi), but the death that pick makes that dream never materialized.


A few years after his father's death, Mayer Amschel Bauer works as a young clerk in a bank Oppenheimer family in Hannover. Ability to quickly see the advantage, and his career took off quickly. He was given the opportunity as a young partner in the ownership of the bank. After he returned to his birthplace in Frankfurt, he bought back his father's business has been built since 1750.

With the present road types of rare coins at low prices he opened the door of friendship with the general and diverse courtier in the palace of the prince. One day he was introduced directly to Prince Wilhelm personally. The Prince bought a pile of medals and rare coins from him. This event is the first transaction between a Rothschild with a head of a state. Within a reasonable time Rothschild has developed its business with other princes.



Rothschild tried another tactic to ensure his connections with the local prince. He wrote with pride of the noble sentiments rub as he begged them for protection.

The facts were somewhat less romantic, but it is. " Jewish community to explain how the Rothschild save money $ 3,000,000, - it. Rothschild seems to have folded the money Prince Wilhelm.


Even before the money into the hands of Rothschild, the money was not clean (not 'kosher', or halal). The money came from the British empire paid to Prince Wilhelm, but not yet paid to the troops who are entitled Rothschild. With that money as capital firm foundation, Mayer Amschel Rothschild decided to open his own business as the first international banker. Several years before Mayer Amschel Rothschild sent a third son, Nathan, to England to run the family business in the country.
